My five year old will only eat crisps. To make sure he gets enough sugar, I give him warm sugary tea in a bottle. I've noticed he chews the teat and the tea spills everywhere. Should I introduce a cup or just supplement with Haribou?

just give him a bag of sugar.

fuck feeding? Is that like cluster feeding?

I think that's what cluster feeding should be called...

It's when your baby screams hysterically if you dare remove your breast from its mouth any time between 6pm and midnight.

torture you mean?

(may I just point out that the g in omg stood for goodness-gracious-me)

Twiglett Tue 10-May-05 20:19:34

but seriously

you should make sure you vary the type of crips to make sure that you cover all food groups

so for example

chicken crisps (for protein) and cheese & onion (calcium / protein and veg)

oh and if you add a shot of vodka in the tea he'll sleep through the night for you

oh i've just dampened my knickers slightly mp you do make me laugh

Yes - they tried it at Abu Graib but Amnesty put a stop to it after protests

What flavour crisps are they?

Bacon or Chicken or Beef so getting meat

Cheese and Onion = milk and veg

Salt and vinegar = sodium and vitamin and minerals

A very balanced diet IMHO

(that was referring to torture, not knicker-wetting)

Must go and scrub my kitchen floor now

Twiglett Tue 10-May-05 20:21:39

are you absolutely sure he doesn't need surgery?

RTKangaMummy Tue 10-May-05 20:23:01

Must show that it will be good for the Darling Child

lactulose is very good for upping the sugar content and it's free from the dr

He used to eat only Wotsits but his face was permanently orangey yellow and the HV had him admitted to hospital with suspected jaundice. He now becomes hysterical if he sees a sunbed.
